Hatteras 42' LRC

The Hatteras 42 LRC was introduced as one of the few alternatives to the influx of Asian trawlers imported during the era of fuel shortages. Her hull features rounded bilges forward that gradually harden to form a shallow "V" aft at the transom. Not surprisingly, the 42 LRC will roll somewhat in a beam sea - a common characteristic of displacement-type hulls but a worthwhile price to pay for her otherwise excellent seakeeping qualities. Her conventional double cabin floorplan includes fore and aft staterooms, each with a head and stall shower. The deckhouse galley was redesigned in 1979 from an in-line arrangement to port to a convenient U shaped layout set against the aft salon bulkhead. A full-width afterdeck replaced the walkaround trunk cabin in 1980, and a tapered double berth in master stateroom became available in 1981. A superb cruising yacht, twin Lehman or GM diesels will cruise the Hatteras 42 Long Range Cruiser at a steady 8 knots (6 gph) with a cruising range of over 1,000 miles. At a reduced 7-knot speed the range is close to 2,000 miles.
